Lindsay Perigo: And Then A Hero Comes Along

- Seeking & finding kindred spirits - in the flesh, in literature, in movies, in music, in science, in industry, in any area of rational endeavour - while living up to one's own standards in pursuit of one's own goals, brings in its wake a joy that will remain standing even if it takes a pounding from the "drooling beast" & goes wobbly at the knees occasionally.
